After an emotional outburst, Spock diagnoses his condition as his first Pon Farr... the Vulcan mating ritual, where he must return to Vulcan to marry his betrothed, or he will die. Complications arise, however, placing Kirk in danger...
I thought it was time to revisit the original series following Leonard's passing. I haven't watched very many episodes in the second and third seasons... so this will be a new experience for me. I think this episode is really where the roots were planted, the characters solidified their friendships here and - of course - Chekov arrives!
